Former President Donald Trump said that he will still speak at the National Rifle Association conference this weekend because “America needs real solutions and real leadership in this moment.”
Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have been calling for the conference, which is taking place in Houston, Texas, to be cancelled in the wake of the school shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde on Tuesday.
“America needs real solutions and real leadership in this moment, not politicians and partisanship,” Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social. “That’s why I will keep my longtime commitment to speak in Texas at the NRA Convention and deliver an important address to America. In the meantime, we all continue to pray for the victims, their families, and for our entire nation—we are all in this together!”
Trump is the keynote speaker for the first night of the conference, which is taking place from May 27 through May 29.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Sen. Ted Cruz are also still planning to speak at the event.
